So Mayweather vs. Pacquiao is finally happening

(FoxSports)
It will have taken over five years ever since the talk surrounding a superfight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao began but now the fight the boxing world has been waiting for and waiting for will finally happen. Mayweather broke the news on Shots yesterday and the fight, taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on May 2nd, is widely expected to be the most lucrative fight of all time. It will be a joint broadcast between HBO and Showtime, the second one of its kind (the first being Lennox Lewis vs. Mike Tyson in 2002).

Many will approach this fight as better late than never, but it is hard to deny that this will be the same fight as it could have been a few years ago.

All in all, there's a lot on the line this Sunday at Daytona International Speedway.

As with every edition of this race, there are a number of storylines on hand for the 2015 Daytona 500 but when push comes to shove, who will win? Here is my prediction.
